a still young heart

Carpe Diem Theme Week (6) 4 Tanka Splendor


how fortunate
are withered flowers
in old age
not to feel the pain
of a still-young heart

spring planting joy
farmer dreams of harvest
fill depleated stores
across abandoned fields
his gaping grave awaits

    1. It just feels like that after watching our parents and their siblings pass from life. And why stop dreaming and planning? Keeps one alive till the end.
